Read any good books lately? As a matter of fact, I have read several over my week of recovery.
Reading is proving to be a fundamental part of my under the weather routine and with good reason. A good book has the power to transform thought, enlighten the soul, teach the mind, lift the heart and take the reader on an all expenses paid trip to places and spaces through inspiration and imagination no plane, train or automobile can get us to.
First up on my under the weather reading list is Paris Flea Market Style by Claudia Strasser. The ooh la la factor and how to get it, emulate it, and incorporate it into our design and decor needs no introduction.
Love of family, faith, Louisiana and balancing a politically mixed marriage-I like the yin and yang world of Mary Matalin and James Carville that noticeably makes this political power couple tick. Their this works for us attitude is the prominent feature in Love & War: Twenty Years, Three Presidents, Two Daughters and One Louisiana Home.
A smart, funny read with witty observations that rate hilarious on the laugh-o-meter, Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? (And Other Concerns)
by Mindy Kaling is a gem of a good read. This book accomplishes exactly what it sets out to do by taking the reader on a most entertaining ride with hilarity riding shotgun.
Veranda A Passion for Living: Houses of Style and Inspiration is a gorgeous review of gorgeous style from cover to cover! Beautiful addition to any bookshelf or coffee table.
Dave the Builder is embracing his role as runner, and I reassured him there is a beginning, middle and end to this new duty. I like going to the neighborhood parish library to check out the new offerings and to check out books. There are books that pique your interest but give pause to actually purchasing it for your home library.
Toni Braxton’s autobiography, Unbreak My Heart, has been on my check it out list for awhile now. She’s a personality that flies under my radar most of the time, but I do love her voice and think her story will make for a good read.
